A 2009 report by the Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration shows that the states with the highest per capita drug use are: Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Montana, Colorado, Vermont, New Hampshire, Rhode Island. Go figure..... I imagine this must include illegal use of alcohol by kids and marijuana by socialites, but still it calls into question our preconceived notions about "poor" states, or southern border states.
